Don’t stroll into Y&L Style Bar expecting a haircut or color treatment. Though comprised of expert stylists, the salon's team sticks to washes followed by blowouts and elegant up-dos. This means, that once every strand has been swept into place, customers will have enough time to enjoy manicures and pedicures, administered by nail techs or to sit as one of the bar's aestheticians beautifies their skin with mineral-based cosmetics by Jane Iredale.
But the fun here isn't reserved for adults only: birthday party packages invite girls as young as four to enjoy age-appropriate makeup, manicures, and other pint-size pampering, while Y&L's entire crew shares their skills with teen girls at annual summer camps.
A newly remodeled interior belies Azule Hair & Nail Salon's 30-year history of beautifying clients with flattering haircuts and mani-pedis. Seated in front of full-length mirrors, guests can watch for themselves as stylists snip their locks and enhance the final look with vivid color. When it comes to nails, the salon goes above and beyond the basic grooming and polish application. Many mani-pedis come with a paraffin dip, which soothes joints and moisturizes skin.

Stylists at Baliza Salon draw on their arsenal of salon-quality products from brands such as Pureology, Redken, and Pravana when cutting and coloring clients’ hair or pampering their skin with facials. In addition to cuts, stylists also combat unwanted frizz with keratin-infused Brazilian gloss treatments and add volume and length with hair extensions. Away from the styling floor, aestheticians cleanse pores with facials, and nail technicians add shellac polish to keep nails looking as fresh as a crisp head of lettuce floating through the vacuum of outer space.
